Somewhere along the way I let me talk myself into some Smittybuilt no-flare front fenders. I had a couple benjamins lying around and thought what the hell. So I ordered em up and when they arrived I started hacking on the TJ. No sooner than I had made the cuts I knew Smittys were a mistake. They just didn't smack of quality to me. I'd read some threads where folks were debating buying quality i.e. Rokmen, Currie etc. versus Chinese knockoff junk. But I had to learn the hard way, I'm funny like that. Anyway, I had already chopped up the passenger fender so I was kind of at a crossroads. I ended up selling the Smittys to a local guy for $200.00 and as previously mentioned I sold the AtoZ sliders for $190.00. So basically I had about four bills to throw at some new fenders. But before I get to that here's some crossroads pics of the hackjob on the passenger fender.

So while I was shopping for new replacement fenders I started thinking about how I would paint them and what color. I'm not a painter and can't afford to have my stuff painted. I do have a brother-in-law who is an accomplished painter who paints airplanes for a living and restores vehicles in his down time. But I knew that I wouldn't be able to hit him up for painting help due to the fact that he just bought a new house and had surgery on his sack twice!!!!!!! The second one was to remove a nut!!!!!! So needless to say I didn't have the balls to ask him for help (pun intended)

So I decided I would buy an inexpensive piece of something Jeep-related and experiment with colors. I ended up winning a newer Jeep cowl on ebay from alljeepparts for a penny plus $15.01 shipping. So for $15.02 I had a part to play with. Then I saw a Jeep on the forum that became my inspiration for paint, I believe it's Gecko5's rig(see first picture below). He spray-painted his rig green and the seed was firmly planted. So I headed off to Wallyworld and bought a few cans of Hosta Leaf green gloss. The first pic is my inspiration rig and the second one is the cowl painted green....a clue.

I decided to paint the whole Jeep Krylon green. I also ordered Metalcloak Overlines, Rokmen Mercenary sliders and Rokmen aluminum full corners, JK turn signals, Warn M8000 winch and a UCF oil pan/tranny skid. Here's a few pics of the front fender tear-down and paint going on. You can also see the winch installed, the grill inserts painted up and popped in and where I started drilling for the JK signals.

Nice build and I like the color, are you sanding between coats or just laying it down as is. It is looking good. Can't wait to see more!

Yeah, I sanded between coats but I'm no paint expert so I probably did it all wrong. The hood ended up getting seven coats. I would lay down a couple of coats, then hit it with some 1000 grit to knock off any specks of dirt. Then after the sixth coat I wet-sanded the hood (again with 1000 grit) and got it smooth as a baby's butt. Then I laid down the 7th and final coat and called it good. Basically, I just kept laying down coats and doing a little detail sanding between coats until I was happy with the finish. My goal was to get a nice even sheen with no tell-tale signs of rattlecan streaking. The hood cost me $21.00 to paint
